Please feel free to distribute to any of your networks/ colleagues

who share an interest in this issue.


***Invitation to discus the formation of an

Integrative Health Network for the Hunter Region***

There are an increasing number of professionals in the Hunter Region who are facing the unique challenges associated with integrating complementary non-mainstream therapies and into their every-day practice.

This is an open invitation to any Hunter Valley-based practitioners (nurses, allied health and others) - working in any setting - who are using complementary and "alternative" approaches in their work, and who would like to explore the possibility of forming a network with other professionals working in similar ways and facing similar issues.


(1) Any "mainstream" professionals (doctors, nurses, allied health, pharmacists, medical scientists, psychologists, teachers, etc.) who also integrate complementary or "alternative" methods/ approaches - e.g. Doctors using acupuncture or nutritional regiemes, nurses using massage therapies or aromatherapies, teachers using physical/ neurodevelopmental therapies, psychologists using biofeedback, etc.

(2) Mainstream practitioners working in non-mainstream settings (e.g. Anthroposophical Doctors, Steiner teachers, Birth Centre Midwives,Nurses in private practice, etc)

(3) Students with an interest in integrative

approaches to health, nursing & medicine are also welcome.
